Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Some sweetness. A BIG nose: brambles and summer fruits, loganberry, roast chestnut, chocolate, treacle toffee, Lea and Perrins, smoke.
Palate: Rich with good depth of flavour. That treacle toffee again alongside roasted nuts. Stewed tea.
Finish: Hedgerow fruits.
Comment: The Port gives a sweetness you don't usually encounter in Mortlach. This has balance.
7.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet nuttiness. Almonds. Fresh figs.
Palate: Slow start. Heavy footed. Black treacle.
Finish: Crisp. Ginger biscuits.
Comment: Mortlach is usually a supple, muscular malt. At ten years, this already seems a trifle tired.
